Vocabulary

Look at these two sets of phrases:

my annual salary
his income per annum
the annual harvest
their annual holidays
an annual meeting
the annual Christmas party

my yearly salary
his income per year
the yearly harvest
their yearly holidays
the yearly meeting
the yearly Christmas party

They are equivalent. You can use one or the other. What is your native language? Do you have a good vocabulary?

Maybe you will have to speak to somebody who does not have a good vocabulary. If you have to talk to somebody who does not have a good vocabulary, you should be able to simplify your vocabulary so that the other person can understand you.

Maybe the other person knows the word “year” but he does not know the word “annual”.

Maybe the other person is familiar with the term “yearly” but she is not familiar with the term “annually”.

  1. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    Nevertheless imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    videos, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Amazing blog!
